Dinas Noddfa Chapel, Swansea, Wales - Nov 2016

 

So, another year another backlog!  These were taken back in November, when Mookster and myself embarked on a South Wales Road Trip.  I had two free nights Bed and Breakfast in a Hotel and Spa due to a mess up the previous summer when my partner and myself stayed here.  The offer was there and the months went on, so I decided I would swap the Double to a Twin and Ben and myself would go.

 

The Baptist Chapel was built in 1824 and rebuilt in 1852. This was followed by enlargements in 1870 by architect Thomas Thomas of Landore.

 

Dinas Noddfa was rebuilt again in 1884 to the design of architect George Morgan of Carmarthen; in the Italian Romanesque style with a gable-entry plan. The chapel finally closed in the mid to late noughties, possibly around 2007. Dinas Noddfa is now Grade 2 listed for its fine interior.

 

Today was the first outing of my new Canon 760D, Lenses and Trigger Operated Ball-Head.  

 

After Seven years of shooting on Sony Alpha DSLR I have migrated to Canon EOS.

      Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  
      It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.
      The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 
      There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 
      It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 
      So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.
